Dr. Simon Ourian: Get Rid Of Stretch Marks

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Simon Ourian at EPIONE in Beverly Hills came in today as bikini season is upon us....get rid of those embarrassing stretch marks.. and watch how fast and cool it is with the Coolbeam Technique.

Stretch marks reportedly effects 90% of all women

Stretch marks are a type of scar. The underlying layer of the skin is called the dermis; a stretch mark occurs when there is a breakdown is elastin and collagen fibers that make up the dermis.

Causes include rapid weight loss or gain due to pregnancy, diet, bariatric surgery. Also, breast augmentation for women and body building for men.

Heredity is a factor

 

How It Works:

During the Coolbeam technique procedure the surface of the skin is cooled using a special device.

A series of light pulses are flashed on the surface of the skin which absorbs the light energy.

This absorption in turn causes the instantaneous vaporization of the superficial cells and a mere 10 millionth of an inch of tissue is removed at a time.

After the damaged skin is removed, new skin will quickly regrow in its place.

 

Benefits:

Long-lasting/immediate results

Treats both white and red stretch marks

Safe

Discomfort: Typically patients liken it to the snapping of a rubber band.

Minimal down time. Unlike other laser treatments the Coolbeam  technique does not require a recovery period.
